I picked this place because it was a ryokan and in an old Tokyo neighborhood. I stayed five nights in a large (the larger of two options) Japanese-style room and private bath. The owner was very helpful with directions and recommendations. Best of all was the neighborhood of Yanaka, a regular place thought very near the somewhat touristy Ginza Yanaka...

I think I found this place through TripAdvisor and then did my research on the internet about what it was. I wanted to start my trip in a not very touristy area and this place in Yanaka was perfect. My room originally seemed small, but had plenty of space for myself (plus it had a private bathroom). What's more important...

We split our stay in Tokyo into two halves. The first was spent in the Tokyo Hilton and the second half we moved into the suburbs of Yanaka for a more traditional Ryokan experience. As some reviews have noted the Ryokan Katsutaro Annex is not so traditional, its a hybrid with private bathrooms. We didn't mind that at all, and...

This was a great place to stay in the megalopolis that is Tokyo. The Yanaka neighborhood is quiet, but very close to subway and JR lines, including Ueno station. The ryokan proprietors were very courteous. The rooms are great for those who like traditional tatami. There are English-language maps and other materials, computer/wifi, and laundry facilities on site. We plan...

This ryokan is very nice. The Japanese style room was nice, the shower was very good and it was quiet at night. Breakfast was fine. The hotel is located in a nice area near two metro stations and lots of restaurants. The owners are nice and helpful. They gave us recommendations for restaurants.

Excelent location, service and friendly staff. Just two blocks from the metro Station. If I have to come back to Tokyo Annex will be my hotel.

I can't say enough good things about this ryokan. The location is excellent in a very quaint neighborhood and is convenient to all major railway lines. The owner was kind enough to wait for my arrival at around 11 pm and show me to my room. They were also kind enough to call a local restaurant and make a reservation...

Modern style building with traditional Ryokan type rooms. Good location only 10 mins walk from Nippori JR station, nice and quiet, very clean. Would definitely stay here again. Wifi is a bit flakey at times but there is LAN connection if you need it and PCs in the entrance lobby. The noodle restaurant nearby (on the corner up the stairs)...

The location of and service at this ryokan were superb - when I arrived I was greeted by name! The rooms are traditional (sparse, but fully functional) and the location is great - a short walk to Nippori station, and also close to Ueno and the park and museums. There's also a great noodle shop on the corner! I would...

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
